There is a lot of movement and vibe in this industry week and much of it involves reopening – or maybe not – the world casino and card area, and what kind of if and when they do it …
Kings Casino can be opened for cash games
Europe’s largest cardroom, King’s Casino Leon Tsoukernik in Rozvadov, opens its doors Monday, but the championship is not yet on the list.
The host venue for WSOP Europe, Kings reported that, “Poker cash games, live games like Roulette and Black Jack and Slots could exist,” with King’s Casino Prague, as well as Admiral Casino in Rozvadov also reopening after 6- week layoffs. .
King’s Facebook page states that: “The championship won’t happen for now, but we hope we can start with them soon too. ”
The Czech Republic is largely isolated from major casualties on many sides of Europe as well as the US, but important suburbs (for poker and general trading players) with nearby Germany are consistently closed.
Derby Lane abandoned the idea of opening again
Across the Atlantic, S. Petersburg, Florida, the racino at Derby Lane looks like the first to reopen its doors, Monday, May 11, the scheduled date.
However, the idea of running from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with only a quarter of the 52 tables in play, games being limited to 6-max and dewapoker players who were advised to wear masks while playing, was stopped the previous week.
Derby Lane spokesman Alexis Winning told local TV journalists: “Players who do not comply with our social distancing conditions or take actions that cause anxiety to other players can be ordered to quickly leave company property. ”
Their website currently states that although the races may start, the proposed card area opening will no longer take place.
Nevada details casino reopening regulations
In Nevada, the opening limitations will be tighter, the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) has issued a decision to reopen again which can limit the poker table to only 4-max.
That’s the same amount they could possibly get in roulette, with the craps table tucked away at 6 players and blackjack for only 3 players, and the casino only allowed to work at 50% of its total capacity.
Basing their new rules on health and safety rules, casinos should give the NGCB a detailed idea before they are allowed to open.
Enhanced hygiene signs and routine detailed disinfection habits can be important, and reliable remote enforcement and training for staff.
No date has yet been set for the Nevada casinos to reopen. But in the meantime, there were online casinos that paid bonuses in bitcoin. Still the safest option today.
